    Yea, definitely jump on it.

    I've been collecting all the different categories. Want to lend to every country in the world next!

    I get prompted via email once I accumulate about $50 in repayments and I usually re-lend straight away before i forget about it. Are you getting your reminder emails?

    I have a feeling they may be some of my 30,000 unread emails. :mad:

    Thank you for posting this. I was going to suggest it. I get Emails to remind me which is great. As soon as it's in I re-lend. I also up add a bit extra each year. It;'s a great initiative.

    No problem, there's no "I" in team, right? ;)

    There is an 'i' in a TEAM.

    It is hidden in the A-Hole.

    Hi All, Could someone please share how this works? I am aware of Kiva just wondering how the "somersoft" group works and how we go about contributing to that. Thanks

    I am wondering whether we keep it as the "Somersoft" team. I re-lend when it gets to $50. I get the reminder emails

    I would prefer to leave it as it is.
    Start a new one if needs to be. That way, people can make their own choice.

    In Kiva, you can join Somersoft as a group.
    When you do each of your loans, you can attribute them towards a group (or it defaults to that one if you're only a member of 1).
    It really doesn't do anything, except collect all the combined stats (which are interesting!)

    Keeping it as Friends Of Somersoft is my preference. We still, after all, are friends of Somersoft regardless of whether its still alive or not. I also don't want to lose all the stats. Could be cumbersome ensuring people to change their group settings too.

    I also joined up today and will start lending once I have a read to see how it works.. can you choose to lend to anyone you want? We now have 98 members. Let's see if we can get 100 before the weekend.
